General / X Factor theme tune
« on: December 12, 2010, 10:26:15 pm »
My friend is doing an assembly on wed and wants the theme music from X factor for it.

I can only find crappy ringtone versions, or a video.

Tried downloading a programme to rip the audio from a video but that didn't work either!!

Is there anybody that can get me a version for me, so I can pop it on a CD!

Games, Computers and Tech Issues / More laptop problems
« on: October 24, 2010, 02:27:14 pm »
In January my boyfriends HDD on his laptop went, before I could get anybody else to fix it he'd took it to the local computer shop.
Who then did a shite job of installing a new one, as it then had to go back for more repairs as the blue screen of death came back twice!

They installed a new version of vista (my boyfriend had lost the recovery CD), and used the product key from the bottom of the laptop.

All was fine for a few months, but then a week ago when he tried to start it up and log in to windows a screen came up saying his version of Windows had 'expired'.

Was then taken back to the computer shop who had done all the work on it before and had obviously fucked up yet again.

They've had it for a week, and have 'contacted microsoft' but apart from that have done nothing.

Getting a bit fucked off with them, as they messed us about before and are quite clearly doing it again.

If they installed a fresh copy of windows, then surely they should of used a brand new product key and not the one from the bottom of the laptop? Are they at fault, and what do they need to do to fix it?

It's a shit laptop, and we are in the process of getting funds for a new one, but until then it's the only one he's got!

Games, Computers and Tech Issues / laptop screen flickering/going blank!
« on: September 13, 2010, 03:36:07 pm »
Just started last night, screen begins to flicker (going darker and then lighter) and then it'll go blank (even though it's still switched on) I keep having to press the 'on' button to get it on (it wouldn't come on when I first turned it on and had to plug it in in order to get the screen on.

Got a samsung r510 and it's only 2 years old!

i did a windows update yesterday, and it installed an update for 'Atheros Ar5007eg wireless network adapter'

but since I installed the update my wireless connection drops every 2 minutes, and it's doing my head in!

Anyway I can unistall the update, or make it so that it doesn't keep disconnecting!

Games, Computers and Tech Issues / Laptop broken
« on: January 04, 2010, 10:11:42 pm »
My boyfriends laptop has been a bit shit for the past few months, it's hard drive died and was replaced, and a clean install of vista was done at the computer shop, it then broke again and had to be sent back.

He's just text me again to say that windows won't start, is there anything I can do to fix it?

I've got my vista install disc, but I've got a Samsung laptop and his is a Dell.

Ask/Tell Haxed / Lightbulb help!
« on: October 14, 2009, 03:25:57 pm »
The lightbulb casing on my bedroom light has broken, the bit that keeps the bayonet from slipping back out has snapped off on one side!

So now I can't put a new bulb in until I replace that bit.

But how on earth do I replace it?

Just back from seeing this in 3D!

It was awesome, and also a little sad!

And really enjoying the 3D experience, was a little weird at first, but once you got used to it and forgot you were wearing the glasses I really liked it!

I'm currently working in an Additional Needs Unit which is of course seriously short of funding and in dire need of being redecorated and refurnised and needing new resources.

Does anybody know of any companies that give donations to things like these, I've found one for Tesco but they don't accept applications until December.

The Zooniverse / The Dog Whisperer
« on: September 07, 2009, 07:03:23 pm »
Does anybody watch this?

I've become totally addicted, as my staffie can on occasion be aggressive (usually when the other dog starts it) and I love seeing how he can see the problem with dogs almost instantly.

And I like his stance on aggressive animals, that euthanasia is a last resort!
Here the opinion is, if it shows any sign of aggression its a lost cause and must die!

Also, I want to steal Daddy!
